Very rude awakening for yours truly. Done a lot wrong over the time and will probably continue to do so.
There has been a lot of chatter on this forum on deep freezing frames to kill wax moth and eggs.
I have a little chest freezer. I have some wax foundation frames been sitting around a few weeks since they were made and foundationed (politicians can muck with the words so can I ) . Maybe wax moth has got to them and laid eggs? I will fix them good and give them a good freezing.
Fast forward 24 hours as I lift my very expensive wax foundation frames, which had been carefully assembled and crafted, from the freezer only to see them crumbling around me. 75% of the wax foundation just shattered and fell to the ground and not being as nimble as I once was I could not beat them to the bits to the ground.
Has this happened to you or you much more careful, have better technique or just blessed.
I am not inclined to put waxed foundation in the freezer again… maybe a case to switch to plastic foundation.
And No I didn’t see it coming but I should have. My bad.
